Project summary

Dante is a cognitive neuroscientist who combines neuroimaging experiments and computational models to understand the functional architecture of the brain. He works in the field of brain connectivity, investigating how dynamic interactions between distant brain regions are generated. His current work focuses on examining changes in behaviour and brain connectivity following highly controlled lesions in the macaque brain. This research may have an impact on the way we view the effects of brain lesioning on cognition.
